Welcome to Castlefield Community Centre

Castlefield is a small and inviting neighbourhood house managed by BayCISS (Bayside Community Information and Support Service). We run programs that respond to the needs of the community and hire facilities to local groups and private providers. Our aim is to build a connected community where people can learn new skills, share their experiences and get the support they need to feel valued in their community.
